Purlesque, the Liverpool knitting group that released a naughty calendar last year, has a new project for you to help with. As part of the NICE Festival, Liverpool's celebration of Scandinavia and all things northern European), Purlesque are creating a knitted winter garden at the Bluecoat Centre. If you can knit a white square, knit or crochet a snowflake or make a white pom-pon, they'd love you to send it to them, or you can go to the Bluecoat Centre on the 28th or 29th November and take your yarncraft in person. They'll be asking people to try fingerknitting on the days, and of course you can make more snowflakes and squares while you're there.
It's hoped that the garden will stay up for a couple of weeks after it's been built, so if you're in Liverpool in the first fortnight in December, do drop by the Bluecoat Centre and take a look!
